“Retired hotelier says as good as it gets!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 12, 2013

Having spent five weeks travelling around France from north to south and a detour and stop off in San Sebastien on our way eating plat de jour each day, I can really recommend this restaurant for lunch. Being a retired hotelier I can say that the service and food was as good as any michelin restaurant without the pomp. Great honest 5* food and service to match.

“Always a great experience!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 5, 2013

There are several restaurants in Vannes, but If I had to choose one, that would be for sure Les Remparts. Not only because the location is ideal, and the food is outstanding, but because the atmosphere and staff make for a perfect culinary experience.

“As good as it gets”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 31, 2012

Les Remparts in Vannes, never fails to delight. Once again exceptionally good food, beautifully presented and perfectly cooked - the service was faultless, a perfect example of how food should be served being neither rushed nor tardy, by well informed waiters who obviously enjoy their job. Add in a pleasant atmosphere, a well considered wine list, an acceptable price and you have a bistro/restaurant that is as good as it gets.

“Best restaurant in Vannes (probably)”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 2, 2012

I've been living in Vannes for over 10 years and since this changed management a few years ago Les Remparts has shot to the top of our list (nudging out Rive Gauche) in a town that's pretty well-served restaurant-wise. it's more of a bistrot really but the food is really excellent and consistently good. It's not too stuffy/snooty like many French restaurants and they put great emphasis on the wine, and not just expensive ones.

They do a thing called "pata negra" which we didn't try for ages because it's pork and it's difficult to get excited about pork, but it blew our minds. It's from special pigs fed on acorns or chestnuts or Toblerones or some such stuff, but it was terrific.

So, this restaurant might not be as fancy as L'Eden or Roscanvec, but it's better value and has a better atmosphere. Rive Gauche is very similar but this place has the edge.
